Mother's Day 2022 Gift Guide

I'm excited to announce this Mother's Day 2022 Gift Guide! 

How many times have you been asked what's on your wish list and had no answer prepared? This year, you'll be ready for that question when somebody asks! You might want to save this post for your birthday and other special occasions, too! 

Mother's Day 2022 Gift Guide

There are discounts & giveaways for several of the items in the guide, and I'll be posting videos for several of them throughout this week, so stay tuned on YouTube and Instagram so you don't miss them! 

Now, onto the featured items- I've carefully chosen some special things that I would love to give (or receive) for Mother's Day.  I hope you'll discover something new that you'd like too!

A Subscription Box

A subscription box is like getting a recurring gift package in the mail (filled with little surprises you didn't even know you wanted!).

Local Box Co (a quarterly subscription box) began as a way to bring small, local Ontario businesses together into one box. Available throughout Canada, a new box is curated for each of the 4 seasons of the year. Boxes include 5-8 themed, locally sourced products from talented local businesses. 

Local Box Co definitely makes Mother's Day shopping easy- you can trust Aly's taste in choosing these gifts- she does a beautiful job with each box!  Get a closer look at the Spring 2022 box in my YouTube video and don't miss your chance to win a box over on Instagram!

Use Code Heather15 for 15% off the first box in your subscription or 15% off your individual Summer Box purchase.

GIVEAWAY: Local Box Co is giving away one of their Summer boxes! Head over to Instagram to enter!

Scented Candles

I discovered New Scotland Candle Co. the first year they opened shop in 2020.  They're based in Nova Scotia and their products are all hand crafted in small batches with premium ingredients. With their Herbs & Botanicals Collection and Limited Edition scents, you can find just the candle, wax melt or room spray for you (then give your hubby or kids the hint they need to add it to your wish list!).

Scents included in the photo below are:

2 limited edition candles: Summer Fruit (the scent of fresh strawberries & tart rhubarb) in a travel tin and Gardenia Petals in the mason jar size.

2 candles in the same sizes from The Nova Scotia Collection: Lilac Blossoms and their bestselling Sea Smoke (which is truly a lovely mixture of scents including notes of anise, ivy, violet flowers, vanilla and musk).

Finally, out in front is the Small Botanical Tin size of Lavender which actually has bits of the lavender flower in it. This is part of their Herbs & Botanicals Collection (these scents come in a couple of candle sizes and a room & linen spray. 

GIVEAWAY: Don't miss your chance to win some candles over on Instagram!

A Good Bag

This is the Caroline bag by Lily Jade. It's a beautiful tote that converts to a backpack and can serve as a diaper bag, a purse, and even a way to carry your laptop! I love the interior organization with lots of pockets inside and out. It comes in beautiful vegan leather with a detachable long strap. I used it recently for a short trip & I think it's going to make a great travel bag! Check out my YouTube video to see what it's like in more detail!

Lily Jade has beautiful bags for all stages of motherhood, whether you’re still carrying diapers with you or not!  I remember the frustration of juggling different bags for different purposes when my girls were very young- I would have LOVED a Lily Jade bag as a diaper bag! Even though I’m out of that diaper stage, I still love a beautiful bag with space and organization for all the things I bring with me! I think a Lily Jade bag would be a beautiful Mother’s Day gift for moms in every stage of motherhood. 

Something I love about Lily Jade is that they partner with Embrace Grace (for women with unplanned pregnancies) and make charitable contributions to bless families committed to adoption. When you purchase from them, you're helping women and families in these unique & challenging stages of preparing and planning for parenthood.

GIVEAWAY: Don't miss your chance to enter to win a $250 gift card to spend in Lily Jade's shop! (The giveaway will be over on Instagram this week)

Spa Products

If a trip to the spa isn't in the gift budget, the gift of at-home pampering with spa products is the next-best thing! After our trip to Ste. Anne's spa, I could still recall the lemon scent in their hand and body wash. Using it now feels luxurious and takes me back to that experience! 

You can order products from Ste. Anne's Spa's own Spa Signature Collection to create a relaxing, rejuvenating escape right in your own home. Their products are created with 100% pure botanical ingredients, no toxic chemicals or synthetic fragrances.  Many of the ingredients come from the gardens on the grounds of Ste. Anne's Spa. 

You can buy the products on site, in some shops in Ontario, and you can order them online from their website and get a closer look at the products pictured here in my YouTube video

A Delicious Treat

I love a unique, "special" treat. When we lived in Utah, it seemed that unique treats and desserts were sprinkled everywhere and I had so much fun discovering them. Then we moved back to Canada and I went on a quest to find Ontario's special treats.  That's when I discovered Bliss Dough.

I tracked down a local stockist and started trying flavours like Funfetti, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Brownie, Cookies & Cream, Peanut Butter... and then there are the seasonal flavours like Gingerbread, Red Velvet, Monster, & my favourite: Mini Egg! 

In the photo below, you can see their gift box (comes with box, gift wrap, card, and 4 jars of cookie dough in the flavours of your choice! (watch the unboxing process in this short reel if you want to see how it arrives when shipped)

They've got shops in Guelph & Waterloo, but they ship online orders across Ontario AND I have a couple of deals for you!
